Murder is Easy preview
When a chance encounter with police officer Fitzwilliam (David Jonsson) inspires Miss Pinkerton (Penelope Wilton) to spill tales of murder in the idyllic village of Wynchwood-Under-Ashe, the only thing more shocking than her subsequent demise is the official line that all of the deaths were accidental.
There are shades of Hot Fuzz to the BBC's two-part adaptation of Agatha Christie's crime novel of the same name, published in 1939.
Pinkerton hadn't been allowed to get as far as Scotland Yard, and affected by her story, Fitzwilliam takes it upon himself to do some digging of his own. Only the villagers don't take too kindly to getting their closets rifled for skeletons, and the assembled lords, major, doctors and reverends won't allow old wounds to be reopened without first engaging in some good old-fashioned intellectual jousting.
Set in 1954, and featuring an ensemble cast that includes Morfydd Clark as Bridget, Mark Bonnar as Reverend Humbleby, Tamzin Outhwaite as Mrs Pierce, and Mathew Baynton as Dr Thomas, we have all the details explaining how to watch Murder is Easy from anywhere in the world just below.
